HORACE ANDY & DUB ASANTE BAND feat. Matic Horns
ARMAGIDDEON SOUND & FRIENDS
Known for his distinctive falsetto vocal style, Horace Hinds aka Horace Andy aka Sleepy sang on many classic productions for reggae producers like Coxsone Dodd, Phil Pratt, King Tubby, Lloyd ‘Bullwackie’ Barnes, Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee, and Prince Jammy to name a few. His career started in 1967 when he recorded his first single, the unsuccessful This Is A Black Man’s Country, for producer Phil Pratt. In the early ’70s, he started to record for Coxsone Dodd, which resulted in Studio One classics such as Skylarking, Every Tongue Shall Tell, and Mr. Bassie. The 1970s and the first half of the 1980s were his most prolific period. He found a new generation of fans in the 1990s, thanks to his work with trip hop pioneers Massive Attack. He continued to record new music for Jah Shaka, Ariwa, and Bunny Gemini, and in 1999 he came up with an album called Living In The Flood released on Massive Attack’s Melankolic record label. In 2007, he cut an impressive album called Livin’ It Up with legendary riddim twins Sly & Robbie. Whether recording in Kingston or in other places of this world, he kept his sleepy choirboy delivery and conscious roots intact, which made that he has always been a favoured vocalist among reggae fans and his eerie, haunting style has been imitated endlessly over the years.
